I had another first on April 3, which was Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry’s. I had never tried their ice cream before, so I deemed it worthwhile to wait in the long line outside on a cold, rainy Portland evening. But it was worth every penny. As Gary so aptly described it, the ice cream was very “sticky”. I opted to try the chocolate chip cookie dough, and despite my choice
being arguably unadventurous, I defend it by pointing out that Ben and Jerry were the inventors of cookie dough ice cream, and I wanted to taste the original. Plus, Gary got a more exciting flavor and he always lets me try his stuff.
Speaking of Gary being a lovely husband friend, he bought me a fancy REI camping backpack yesterday. We’re going to go backpacking once or twice a year and use it to hold my 72-hour kit for the other 361 days of the year.
We got some blueberry bushes in the hopes that we’ll entice Stephanie to come visit us again this summer. I still don’t know what gets Jill excited nowadays… I’ll have to work on that.
Well, my dinner is ready. Adios!
